Jackson Slams Obama On Tv

By D. E. Carson, published on Jul 10, 2008

...Yes and so did Don Imus but he still got fired and his comments weren't nearly as personal or vindictive. Jackson's comments underscore a vindictive attitude toward Obama. I may not like Obama, but he deserves better than just an "I'm sorry, I still support you."

According to the New York Post website, this is exactly what Jackson said that had everyone in an uproar: "See Barack been, um, talking down to black people on this faith based... I want to cut his nuts off. Barack. He's been talking down to black people." The New York Post's website has a video of Jackson's comments... (more)

Celebrity Tabloids Murder The Newspaper

By Lumiere, published on Jul 8, 2008

While standing in line at the supermarket, one cannot help but notice the rows and rows of tabloids and celebrity photographs staring back at you. If you want to buy the New York Times, or any real, credible newspaper, you actually have to go out of your way to find it. When the tabloid monopoly fills the grocery store isles due to demand, out selling quality newspapers, it causes me to stop and analyze our priorities as a society. The public demand for tabloid news proves that regardless of the size ofa city or town,or the people in it, gossip is like a deadly virus without a cure. Unfortunately,... (more)

...and "Dance Cadaverous" as a gift to a thankful and ardent audience. An incredibly beautiful arrangement of "Summer in Central Park", by the great man on Vibes - Horace Silver showcased the Chicago quartet; demonstrating the skillful ability to turn this tune - in reference to a park in New York City on its head. Their arrangement was mouth-watering and infectious.

The sheer lush-like movement was wondrous and heavenly. Scott performs with the intensity and earnestness of the Jazz forefathers of the 1960's John Coltrane, Wayne Shorter, and Dizzy Gillespie. While each of... (more)

That's Jazz! At The Hollywood Bowl

By Ricky Ricardo, published on Jun 18, 2008

...were blessed to be in the presence of world renowned photographer Herman Leonard who was hanging out backstage in the Press room.

The Robert Glasper Trio-Robert Glasper-piano, Vincente Archer-bass and Jamire Williams-drums were unknown to me before the festival. This tight trio from New York left a lasting impression playing material from his previous CD’s Canvas and In My Element on the Blue Note Label. I found myself swaying to “FTB,” “Silly Rabbit,” and “Maiden Voyage/Everything In Its Rite Place.”

Comedian Bill Cosby wore many ... (more)

So Close, Yet...

By Ed Attanasio, published on Jun 12, 2008

...he garnered interest from numerous professional scouts. At 6’8”, 240 lbs., Wever was an imposing, fire baller with a great fastball, curve and changeup. When he was on his game, he was virtually unhittable.

After finishing his career at UCSB, Wever was drafted into the New York Yankees organization. In 1982, after winning the Southern League(AA) Pitcher of the Year award, accomplishing the rare Pitcher's Triple Crown (leading the league in wins, ERA, and strikeouts) he made the rare jump from AA to the major leagues.

Wever’s first and only major league ... (more)

Some Birds Just Do Not Use Their Wings

By Justin, published on Jun 9, 2008

...and are constantly getting checked into the boards.

To me, it is the only sport that doesn't have a huge fascination with its inner workings. People don't huddle around the screen for the NHL draft. "Woo, mom look the Pittsburgh Penguins are taking Plaxico Burress from the New York Giants!" It just does not happen. Not to say that I don't watch other sports, but they don't enthuse me, they don't get me off of my fat ass and scream when my team scores, or continually bite my finger nails until they bleed because the time is slowly closing in, and it doesn't look like... (more)

By D. E. Carson, published on Jun 2, 2008

...to battle the blaze.
